Twins and Siblings rowing at the Worlds

there’s a growing number of rowing “families” in current international athletes.  Many famous pedigrees of historic athletic rowers and scullers have existed historically from the American Kellys, the British Phelps, Barry and Dwans and more recently New Zealand twins the Evers-Swindells, Greg and Jonny Searle and Guin and Miriam Batten from the UK.

We’ve been researching the entries to this year’s World Rowing Championships and can report:

Greece – M4 Nikolaos and Apostolos Gkountoulas
